What's Happening

Special events, conferences and meetings are a core function of CCA and one of the key services provided to members.


Our event programs provide CCA members with exclusive networking opportunities, educational programming and access to senior government officials.

Networking: With 2-3 large conferences per year and more than 100 smaller events and meetings, our events provide current and prospective CCA members with opportunities to network with fellow members, private sector company representatives, U.S. and African government leaders and other decision makers. Our members use these opportunities to make valuable connections, obtain peer-to-peer advice on investing in Africa and to make new deals or close pending ones.

Education: Our events also serve as educational tools for the attendees. The expertise of our organization, as well as that of our diverse member base, is conveyed through keynote presentations and panel discussions at all of our major conferences and events. Our event programming covers a wide spectrum of topics based on current issues throughout the continent and the feedback and experiences of our members and government affiliates.

Access: CCA’s conferences, meetings and special events provide our members and guests with exclusive access to key African and U.S. government officials and decision makers. This access is often listed as the benefit of most importance to CCA members and event attendees.
